The Awakened Woman

The awakened woman is not defined by other people or outside forces.

She already knows who she is- and she doesn’t need to explain it to anyone.

She is a force to be reckoned with.  She knows where she is going and isn’t defined by where she’s been.

The awakened woman sees beauty all around her, finds lessons in life’s obstacles, and embraces meaning in everyday moments.

She is a peacemaker, a warrior, and a leader.  She sees strength in her scars and shares her experiences to benefit others.

You may try to pull her back to your level, but she will smile and stay on her own path.

If you are on the same journey, she will welcome you along on hers.  She will inspire you, lift you up, and help you see the beauty you may not see within yourself.

Others may try to break her down, but this will only make her rise up more beautifully than she did before.

I am grateful for all the awakened women in my life.  Thank you for encouraging me to be me.

Growth: How Intuition and Awakening Cause Big Changes

It’s hard to explain why my life has changed so much so many different times these past 10 years. Part of it has to do with being a free spirited young adult, yet today it finally clicked.

As I have changed, and as my spiritual awakening has been happening, the things around me have changed right along with it.

I happen to be a highly intuitive and clairvoyant person, so my gut always tells me or sabotages a situation I know isn’t right. As my consciousness grows and as I stop mixing the messages from society and the outside world, I catch myself. I question big life factors. And, abruptly, I make a change. Although most people don’t understand this or may call my changes erratic, to me they make perfect sense in the end.

From changes such as calling off a wedding and moving to San Francisco from my home state (I had never lived anywhere else at that point) to quitting jobs or moving apartments, change is no stranger to me.

With each change, I move closer to my purpose.

With each fall, I emerge even stronger.

I learn, I feel, and I grow. I listen to my heart center today and do the best I can without letting the outside world sway me any longer.

For years, I listened too much to others- not from the divine guidance from source, which manifests in my life as intuition and synchronicities.

I’m happy to finally realize this for myself, but it sure has been difficult to explain to others- but I know I don’t have to today.

and, when you listen to your intuition, sometimes even a little magic happens.

More Love, More Purpose

Wouldn’t it be amazing if we lived in a world where our baristas wished us a good day, the person at the front desk smiled, and every car stopped for the person crossing the street?  Can you imagine living in a place where people helped one another, opened doors instead of slammed them, and pushed their ego aside to do all things with love?

Seems like a fantasy world, doesn’t it?  Good news: it doesn’t have to be.

Your own world can be more like this.  You may not like life’s circumstances, but you’re in charge of how you react to them.  Despite all of the tragedy, heartache, and natural disaster happening around us, now the perfect opportunity to see the world in a more loving, gentle way.  

It all starts by showing love to yourself.

When you show your own self compassion- giving yourself a break for mistakes, practicing self care, and waking each morning with a zest for life, you’ll live in a world where everything comes much easier and more naturally.

I recently started reading Real Magic by Wayne Dyer, which got me thinking about love and purpose.  We come into this world with nothing and we leave with nothing, so what is our life all about if we don’t live it with love?  Is it truly that important to get ahead of the line or push someone else so you can get the seat on the train?

Once you step outside of yourself and change your perspective a bit, you’ll be amazed at how much more loving the world around you becomes.  Try it and see what happens!
